My Review:

Thank you to HQ Digital and NetGalley for my copy of this book which I have voluntarily read and honestly reviewed.

This is the third book in this series which features Gaby Darin who has recently been promoted to Detective Sergeant in the Murder Investigation Team and a case in Llandudno, North Wales. After recovering from serious injuries, she has returned to work but all is quiet so is looking into cold cases. One case in particular is important to one member of her team, the one termed Operation Angel, as the victim was his now wife’s older sister. As the team start to investigate can they determine what really happened to Angelica?

What an intriguing read this proved to be. The evidence from the past is re-investigated and the possibility of Angelica being the victim of a serial killer arises. Can they identify the killer before he strikes again?

This is a real page turner that makes the members of the team seem like people you know and relate to. It is different to most murder mysteries in that this is a re-investigation of an unsolved case but there are definite links to the present, too. There are family dramas, developing relationships, even a possible romance for Gaby as the story unfurls. I have no hesitation in highly recommending this to anyone who enjoys crime thrillers, police procedurals or murder mysteries.
